Each year, Friends of the Library of Hawai‘i's Board of Directors chooses at least one Volunteer of the Year from amongst our dedicated year-round volunteers. This award goes to those volunteers who have given their time and skills to furthering our organization over the years, daily, and exceptionally. FLH values all volunteers, without whom our organization could not thrive. Therefore we are pleased to recognize a few stand-outs each year among the hundreds that passionately strive at our warehouses and book sales.
